Are mulching and fertilizing on your fall garden task list? Are you aware of why and how to mulch, along with what your lawn needs in the fall to stay healthy? As part of our Fall Garden Tasks Podcast Series, this episode is full of fall garden mulching and lawn maintenance tips and tricks for your fall garden!
Mulching is a garden maintenance task that can help your plants thrive for many years. To keep your grass healthy it needs to be cut, fertilized, aerated, thatched, top-dressed with new soil, and maybe even have some new grass seed applied. Both of these garden maintenance tasks take a bit of time to complete but are so worth the effort.
This episode is for those of you newbies to more advanced gardeners who need help with mulching and lawn maintenance tasks.
